Indian equity markets started the day on a negative note and remained well below the dotted line for most part of the day before closing in the green on account of heavy buying activity in the final hour of trade. The BSE-Sensex closed higher by 100 points, while the NSE-Nifty closed higher by 33 points. The BSE Mid Cap and BSE Small Cap inched higher by 0.7% and 0.3% respectively. Gains were largely seen in consumer durables and auto stocks today.

European stock markets fell for a third consecutive day as fears mounted that Greece will default on its debt. Germany's DAX and France's CAC lost 1.4% and 1.3% respectively in the early trade. Asian markets finished the trading session broadly lower with shares in China being the biggest losers. Indian Rupee was trading at 64.15 against the American dollar at the time of writing.

Shares of Wipro were in demand today after it was reported that the company has won a contract from T-Mobile Poland to provide integrated Applications and Infrastructure services.
